May 2, 2005

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - The Amherst College women’s golf team closed its regular-season spring slate with an outstanding weekend, sweeping Little Three rival Williams College 9-0 in a dual match on Saturday and following with a second-place showing at Williams’ Spring Invitational, played at Taconic Golf Course on Sunday. Senior co-captain Meg Sullivan (Northampton, MA) led the way on Sunday, tying for medallist honors with a round of 80.

Amherst dominated the host Ephs on Saturday, winning all three two-ball matches and taking home all six singles tilts, the closest being a 2-up victory by Jeff rookie Ali Berman (Boca Raton, FL) over Williams’ Andrea Berberian.

On Sunday, sophomore Sarah Harper (Rochester, MN) followed Sullivan closely with an 81, good for third place, while senior co-captain Sarah Godwin (Swarthmore, PA) tied for eighth, firing an 88. Senior Emily Foran (Dallas, PA) capped the Jeffs’ scoring in 13th place with a 96. Amherst’s team score of 345 was just eight shots back from tournament champion Middlebury College, but 33 strokes better than third-place Holy Cross.
